For xbmc -> https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc
For a rootfs -> https://github.com/Pivosgroup/buildroot-linux

Your questions are vague, please clarify exactly what you want to do, XBMC uses GL/GLES which is typically run on a framebuffer. XBMC does not render to a framebuffer directly.

So I have a hardware:

Code:
cat /proc/cpuinfo
Processor       : ARMv7 Processor rev 1 (v7l)
processor       : 0
BogoMIPS        : 996.14

Features        : swp half thumb fastmult vfp edsp thumbee vfpv3 vfpv3d16
CPU implementer : 0x41
CPU architecture: 7
CPU variant     : 0x1
CPU part        : 0xc09
CPU revision    : 1

Hardware        : NXP BL-STB platform
Revision        : 0000
Serial          : 0000000000000000

Memory:

Code:
df
Filesystem           1K-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/root                92160     59792     32368  65% /
tmpfs                       64         8        56  13% /dev
tmpfs                   172892       576    172316   0% /var/volatile
tmpfs                   172892         0    172892   0% /dev/shm

It has ready driver for /dev/fb0 and it works OK.

I would like to commpile a XBMC for it, shall I use normal ARM commpile like in README.xxxx ? Scratchbox ?

Does anyone have valid link for ROOTSTRAP archive ?

Thanks. Root file system I have ready.

Thing is now to compile Xbmc. Perhaps someone have ready Xbmc.bin file for ARM. ??

Thank You.

Perhaps, you should google buildroot, then take a much, much closer look at https://github.com/Pivosgroup/buildroot-...party/xbmc

PS. there is now way that someone's Xbmc.bin, would happen to work on your arm based system Smile
